My freshman year of college was when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released. The two weeks leading up to spring exams, my buddies and I played the game pretty much 24/7, surviving only on a diet of pizza rolls, diet tea, and cookies. By the end of the two weeks, it began to mess with my head. I even had dreams I was in the game. One night, there was a huge thunderstorm. I fell asleep on the couch after another long day of playing Call of Duty. While asleep, I had another dream I was in the middle of warfare. After a loud crash of thunder, I jolted up half awake. At that moment, my roommate came running down the stairs and said it sounded like shotguns outside. Still in a daze, I began to freak out. He asked me what was wrong but I told him to leave me alone. Before I went to sleep, I made peace with everything in my life ready for the war outside to take my life. The next morning I was alive and my roommates were wondering what was wrong with me last night. It was then that I realized the events that took place. Moral of the story: man can not live on a steady diet of pizza rolls, cookies, and Call of Duty without consequences.- Robert L.

Since my fiancee and I live 12 hours away from each other, we decided to meet up halfway (in Dallas, TX) to take our engagement photos in May. I just rescheduled the day of the photos with the photographer so that we can be there for Dallas Comic-Con solely so that we can meet Nathan Fillion.-Leigh

I asked a friend once the usual "What would you do if you had a time machine?" question. I was expecting the usual "I'd go back and kill Hitler" or something. But without much thought, he retorted "I wouldn't want a time machine. I'd have to beat Dark Souls again." It was the single best answered I'd ever received for that question. I was stumped and realized, I wouldn't want to a time machine either that point.-Anonymous

My fiance and I just got married last weekend. He wooed me with his really amazing singing voice, dancing skills, and a dozen other wonderful attributes that's largely irrelevant to Dorkly. I wooed him by playing against him and a friend of his in a 2v1 Starcraft II beta match and giving them a sound & crushing defeat through a combination of well executed turtling against a scouted initial rush, deft micromanagement, keen map awareness, and effective macromanagement while maintaining a behind the back banshee harassment.-Jacob

A co-worker of mine named Luke wanted to feel my more proud of himself at his job. So he tweaked his uniform.-Rina

And this week's "Uh………..what?" Award goes to…

October 31, 2002 was Halloween for the majority of people, including all of my friends during high school, with the exception of myself. I on the other hand had the idea that the release of Natural Selection was far more important than going out on a night that is usually worthwhile. Even if, dare I say it, I wasn't too thrilled with my decision to choose Natural Selection over going out. I believe this choice paid off in the end. Turns out everyone that I would've been with on Halloween was talked into borrowing Kimonos from a friends mom and dressing up as Japanese girls. Now that I think about it the release of Natural Selection allowed me to keep my dignity.-Daniel
